Judge Anna to a military officer (ret)
Colonel– it is obviously a surprise to you that there is more than one “United States” but having been apprised of that FACT and now being told point blank that it has ALWAYS been that way since the beginning of this nation, it should NOT surprise you to know that there are two entities that are states, too– one state known as the Alaska State that holds jurisdiction in the land and another state– a “Federal State” holding the jurisdiction on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waters.
You may have done great things in your career, but so have I and if you wish to have your questions and concerns addressed you must apply yourself to learning new information and acting with appropriate respect for both the jurisdiction of the land and the civil authority of those who inhabit it.
If I were the lowest, most ignorant American left standing on this Continent I would STILL exercise more civil authority on the land than the ENTIRE “federal government” and the American Militia and the U.S. Army would STILL be getting their pay checks from and still be answerable to me.
Not because I am a lawful judge. Not because I am a scholar. But simply because I am an American Civilian inhabiting the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States.
Now you can complain about the way our Forefathers constructed this nation with the land in control of the Americans and the sea in control of the British, but it made sense at the time and if we want to change it now it will require new Treaty negotiations with both the British Monarch and the City-State of Westminster.
Until that time, we work with what exists and exercise our authority and jurisdiction according to The Constitution for the uinited States of America–the original and only equity contract that links us to the Federal United States at all.
While your feet are standing on my ground, Sir, you will respect your position and I will respect the jurisdiction of the sea only so long as they respect civil authority– by which I mean American authority on the land, not a bunch of British pirates.
